Since Burt retired at 52, he’s been bored. After a chance encounter with a mugger he decides he might just be meant to save the world one crime at a time. And voilà, Burt’s Private Investigations is born. Before he knows it, he’s in deep and possibly over his head. He stumbles onto a dead body, which turns out to be the daughter of the town’s country club owner who has rumblings of mob ties in his past. The clues lead him all over the North Georgia mountains, but the most intriguing ones lead to an end of the world compound and its charismatic leader.

Undone is book 1 to the Burt Bigsley Series. Burt is a retired school teacher, who becomes an investigator and is hired to find a killer. This book was wonderful and leads you down a crazy, yellow brick road, with so many twist and turns that you wonder what will happen next. I am looking forward to the rest of this series and the new career of Mr. Bigsley

Kelly Carson is one of those Clark Kent-like guys who just can't stand up for himself. With three weeks to go before Christmas, Kelly receives the shock of his life when he's fired over the telephone while waiting to catch a flight. Terri Flynn, a free-spirited starlet who is running away to New York after walking off the set of her latest feature film, overhears Kelly's unceremonious firing and becomes hell-bent on transforming him from the Clark Kent he is into the Superman the impulsive actress feels he's destined to become.

This book literally had me rolling with laughter! I could not stop listening! The extra step with Mike Dawson and his almost deadpan, don't give an f attitude as the main character, Kelly, finds out what he is made of. HIGHLY recommend this book.

Jeffrey Epstein rose from humble origins to the rarefied heights of New York City's financial elite. A college dropout with an instinct for numbers - and for people - Epstein amassed his wealth through a combination of access and skill. But even after he had it all, Epstein wanted more. And that unceasing desire - especially a taste for young girls - resulted in his stunning fall from grace.

This was a great book by Patterson! I am always amazed at our justice system and how some folks can simply buy their way out of their wrong doings, just as in this case. I so wished that this story was not true, as it was disturbing on so many levels. I do not know if I was more troubled by Jeffrey's actions, or the actions of Sara, and the other (young) ladies bringing minor girls to give Jeffrey a "massage". Why didn't the cleaning staff turn him in, knowing the what they knew and the dirty vibrators, sheets, and towels that they cleaned up after him??? EVERYONE of this is just as guilty as Jeffrey is.

The face of Microsoft and a man now worth $92.3 billion, Bill Gates has a lot to teach us about hard work, success, kindness, unkindness, ruthlessness, tenacity, intelligence, and philanthropy - more so than might be apparent from looking at the easygoing, oft-smiling Gates. Now is as good a time as any to try and understand how a geeky kid (said with the utmost respect) from Seattle became such an ambitious and bold revolutionary in the tech world. I will do so by pointing out a few facets that I think are the most important parts of Gates' career and personality.

I listened to this book on my way to work this morning and I guess I was excepting more than what I could have gotten just by looking him up on Wikipedia. I felt like there was so much more that could have been added to make this book more complete...for example: his home life, who his mentors were/are, more of his philanthropy....there are many avenues that could have been shared.

I have listened to several books by Kevin Theis and normally enjoy his work, however, this book it was almost as if he was shouting and I could picture him wagging his finger at me.

This is a quirky, book with lots of sexual innuendos, as Daisy tries to find Mr Right. However, each of these "men" (I will use the word loosely) each have alcoholic names (which should be her first clue) and she has a British speaking cat, Shakespeare, which just adds to the craziness of this story.

Narrator did a wonderful job, with both her American English as well as her British accent (for Shakespeare).

I love learning about how folks become successful and what steps and motivation they had to get there. When I listen to books like this one it makes me feel as if all things are possible. This book uses 3 different generation of billionaires and what steps they took to get where they are today. Great inspiration!

I love the lead character, Angela Bonaparte! She reminds me of my grandma with the spiky blond hair and full of energy and carunyas. Although this is book 3 of the series, there is enough information in it that this can be a stand alone and you can pick up the back pieces pretty quick. I love how Nanci Rathbun, uses the same characters in each of her books, so you are learning to like or dislike them as they are described. Kieren Metts did a great job narrating this book, as she did the other 2 books and I am sure will be narrating book 4, due out in the Spring. Kieren does a great job with the voices of each character and there is no mistaken who is "speaking"

This series does not disappoint! This is book 2 of the Mackenzie August series, however, can also be a stand alone as the author quickly gets you up to speed with items from book 1. I absolutely love Mac's quirky attitude and quick wit and how he tries to do his best to make everyone happy and what he perceives is the right way of doing things. In the end, I hope he gets Roni (Veronica), but I guess time will tell ;-)

Scott Ellis is doing the narration for this book, as well as he did book 1....I love the way Ellis "knows" his characters and his Manny voice makes my chuckle inside. FABULOUS job!!!

When I listen to an audiobook, I want the book to move me....to teach me something new or to inspire me. This book did not do it for me. This is a collection of books, however, there were so many that repeated the same paranormal event in several of the books, without adding anything insightful or different than what it said in the earlier book....really disappointing. The narrators voice also just did not do anything for me, maybe he was bored with the book too?
